Roberta, you mentioned a new tool from Microsoft that you called Microsoft's free patch management program, System Update Server (SUS). I have searched Microsoft's Web site and can't find any reference to this tool. Where can it be found? I run a small five-node network at home and this looks like it would ease my patch management issues well.
You can find Software Update Server (SUS) information and links to downloads and white papers
. You should read the information on choosing the right solution for your network. To use SUS you will have to load the solution on a Windows 2000 server (not a domain controller) and a client on each Windows 2000, XP and Professional system. Microsoft recommends that Automatic Update is the best solution for most networks under 50 machines. However, you need to evaluate what is best for you. Reading the documentation at the site above may help you do that.
